Ohio Medical Marijuana Bill Advances, But Activists Are Not Celebrating

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, May, 6th 2016 by THCFinder

A revised bill to legalize medical marijuana in Ohio cleared a House panel on Thursday, readying the proposed legislation for a House vote next week. Despite the legislative victory, Ohioans for Medical Marijuana, a group working to put their own medical marijuana initiative for the November ballot, takes issue with the legislature’s restrictive plan.

An amendment requiring physicians recommending marijuana to patients specify the forms and methods of marijuana the patient may use—as well as the amount of THC in the product—is a detail Ohioans for Medical Marijuana say is particularly problematic.

Stressing what promises to be a dominant message of the campaign, Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom said the 62-page initiative will make it harder for people under 21 to obtain pot and easier for police to crack down on illicit sales than it has been in the two decades since California became the first U.S. state to legalize medical marijuana.
